Minimal and clean, with a hint of “darkness”, fabric and texture play a pivotal role.
Designer Malte Flagstad draws inspiration from 1980 ́s New York, with the collection focusing on fabrication and textures associated from jersey, wools and leather.
Supported by The Woolmark Company, the collection references jersey however is made predominantly from Merino wool.
Either highlighted through the construction and composition of the wool fabric to resemble various shades of classic grey melange jersey, or by making iconic men’s wardrobe staples such as shirts and t-shirts from knitted Merino wool panels, wool is celebrated.
A classic wool motif, such as herringbone, is given the appearance of a melange jersey in collaboration with Lanificio Subalpino.
An exclusive technical lightweight nylon print was developed with Limonta which features a classic Prince of Wales check that has been highlighted to become a new check pattern resembling wool.
To present the collection, TONSURE manipulate dynamic projections to create an interactive journey through Manhattan using moving images, with a twisted, digital view of moving traffic against a dynamic city scape.
To intensify the experience, the showcase will be accompanied by a mix of immersive music and sounds, all with relation to New York.
